If you’re like most folks, you never stop thinking about how your landscape and outdoor living area could be better!  As with anything, getting a plan in place before breaking ground can make all the difference in the end result.  Our professional landscape design services can help you transform the visual appearance and add functional elements to your home and garden.  Using appropriate design techniques, you can help the curb appeal of your home while at the same time increase its overall value. With winter right around the corner, there are several reasons you should consider making some changes to your landscape.

Stay Warm

There are many items that can be added to your landscape during the colder months that are actually installed to provide a break from the lower temps.  Fire pits and outdoor fireplaces are becoming more and more popular as the years go by.  Having a place to sit and stay warm during the winter is priceless when you start to feel cooped up inside.  Friends, family and guests tend to gravitate to these spaces because of the calm peaceful effect of a warm soothing fire.  In addition to the obvious, pergolas and hot tubs can be just the thing for a more intimate, moon-lit night with your spouse or loved one.  We invest a lot of hard work and money in our landscape.  Why not add something to your outdoor living area that can increase the time you’re able to enjoy it?

Ready by Springtime

Some major landscaping improvements take a while to install.  Rather than wait until spring when the weather turns warmer, why not go ahead and get your project installed during the winter?  That way by the time spring arrives, and you can enjoy your new landscape during one of the loveliest seasons of the year.  Patios, retaining walls, outdoor kitchens, etc are all projects that can be done very efficiently during the winter months.  Also, contrary to popular belief, the winter is actually a great time to plant trees and shrubs!  Many thing are dormant and will have not stress or shock from transplanting as it common during the hotter months of the year…and you’re giving it some time to grow and root in before the heat of the summer arrives.  Not to mention many popular flowering trees and shrubs bloom in early spring.  If we’re able to get your new landscape design implemented this winter, you’ll have the entire year to enjoy all the different aspects of your new landscape. 

Shed Some Light

This is also a great time of the year to consider outdoor lighting.  With daylight savings time in full effect, the days are shorter and you find yourself at home in the dark much more often than the rest of the year.  Landscape lighting is the perfect addition to any home because it extends the ability to use your landscape.  Whether you’re pulling in your driveway after a long day, peaking out your kitchen window at your beautiful back yard, or just out getting some fresh air after dark, landscape lighting is sure to enhance your experience.  Properly designed systems can help you safely enjoy your most valuable asset, while allowing you to take advantage of and appreciate your landscape whenever you want.
